For our purposes, we also record room temp. We will perform Brachial reactivity if the patient is menstruating, but, make a note of it. I echo your comments about marking the location/position of the transducer for reproducibility.
We get a baseline PSV and 2D diameter; perform R/H for 5 minutes 50 mmHg above resting SBP, acquire PSV and 2D diameter immediate post R/H (4th, 5th, and 6th beats), 60 sec post, 90 sec post, and 120 sec post.
Recently, we have been finding that 50mmHg above SBP is giving us successful occlusion, this is being documented with a device called an Endo-Pat. We began occluding at 200 mmHg.
